Merry Christmas snow flurries

Make It Monday 3259 - Ombre' Cluster Stamping

              MIM features Dawn's cluster stamping in ombre' tones at the capture the moment blog
                                                             Here is her pretty example.

With school starting and fall arriving in 3 weeks, I'm focused on Christmas cards. We're off in our Winnebago this Thursday to Glacier National Park and other NW parks for two weeks. There will 
be no card making along the way but I may bring some stamped images to color in the evenings.

The more this card sat at my desk I thought it needed glamming up! So I die cut the three different size flakes, stamped in the original colors for that size and embossed with an old non-brand Holographic Gloss powder to give it some Christmas snow sparkle. I like it much better. It also emphasizes the cascading effect of the different sized flakes.
